Children have the capacity to learn new things much faster than an adult. Their mind is flexible and open to new things. Young children may find it difficult to focus on one task at a time and their mind will start to wander now and then. You can teach them games to improve their concentration and memory. Children are naturally curious about the world around them. They will ask you thousands of questions about everything. It is up to you to preserve their innocent curiosity and facilitate it with new experiences. It is only the desire to know that allows one to learn.
There are many activities that you can engage with your children to broaden their knowledge about the world around us. You can play educational kids games as a family or with friends to help them learn important concepts such as problem solving, communication, memory retention etc. They will not notice that they are learning anything new as they will be engrossed in the game. You will be able to forge stronger family bonds within your unit through shared activities such as these. Teach your child to communicate with you. You can tell them about what is happening in your life and include them in decision making when it comes to choosing groceries, selecting a vacation destination, deciding a new colour for your wall etc. This will let the child know that you value their opinion. They will come to you with their problems and you can talk together to work it out.
There may be certain subjects that they are having trouble with. To help them understand maths better, you can use a maths app for kids. This will be an efficient use of technology. Both digital and non-digital games are great ways of teaching your child new skills. You can also teach them to cook. They can select a recipe, measure out ingredients, stir the ingredients and maybe add their own twist to the recipe. The whole family can enjoy a batch of cookies or a chocolate cake. They can help with decorating a cake as well.
Origami is another way to improve their skills with precision hand movements. You and your child can both learn together. You can make certain ornaments or decorations for the house as well. Say you have a plain clay vase. You can let your child paint it and glue some glittering things on to it and display it in their room or the living room. Creative arts are an excellent way of letting your child express themselves. Not only art, music can be a great communicator as well. You can teach your child to play simple melodies on the piano. They will learn to read notes, remember pieces and learn to recognise rhythms. You can also create musical instruments from things you find around the house. Maybe there’s an old bucket and some tins you can use to make a drum set. There are a lot of instructive websites online that give good ideas for home crafts and projects.
